I just got my Milanese Loop. Until now I've had the Black Sport Band.

I was planning to swap out the Loop for the Sport Band every time I go running or play soccer, but has anyone found the Loop to be ok during these activities?

I'm mostly worried about sweat damaging the Loop rather than it slipping/moving.

The loop is stainless steel.

Defiantly the sports band. The milanese loop is for fashion, luxury look to the watch. When exercising the sports bands is recommended.

I exercised with the milanese loop every day until I received my sports bands (about a month). I had no issues with the band at all. Now that I have the BSB and WSB, I haven't exercised in the loop at all.

The only reason why I prefer exercising with my sport band instead is because the milanese loop tends to loosen during a workout (running or racquetball). So I have to keep readjusting it because I'm looking for heart rate monitoring to work.

I replaces my sport band with the milanese loop a couple of weeks ago and play tennis with it every day for 2-3 hours. I sweat a lot and it's not been a problem at all. I do, however, wear a sweat band on that wrist and since it's wide enough, it keep it over my watch, and still no problems.
